    Redfoot interesting poop

    I’m located in Honolulu Hawai’i. A few months back I moved to a cooler part of the island and now that winter is here temperatures have dropped to a nightly low of 74 degrees and a daytime average of roughly 85. She does have a heated hide where I have a thermostat and CHE set at 78 degrees, but...

    Redfoot interesting poop

    Aloha forum, I have a question about my Redfoots recent bowel movements. My redfoot, Chevy, is almost 4 years old and has historically always had the same healthy looking poops that I would describe as firm, solid and greenish brown looking. This week her poops have been slightly more runny but...

    FLEX SEAL uses for tortoise keeping

    I love flex seal! I use to deal with pond liner In past projects but the material is not very fun to work with. Flex seal on the other hand is instant gratification! Just apply with a brush or roller and you’re done! While it is slightly more expensive, I think it’s well worth the investment...

    condensation issues with wood (treated)

    You could seal the wood on the doors with flex seal. I love that stuff, you paint it onto a surface and it dries into a rubbery water resistant coating. I sealed the bottom of my enclosure where water accumulates with flex seal to stop the wood from absorbing water and rotting. Just my 2-cents!

    ZooMed reptifogger

    I just installed a fogger in my enclosure. I went with a Vick’s indoor humidifier. My dad had one when I was younger that he used during allergy season. I remember he had the same one for years and it never broke down on him, he might even still have it honestly. He always used tap water and it...

    New enclosure for Chevy!

    Thank you! yes it is! It’s a little pricey but it’s the best material for making a closed chamber with easy viewing in my opinion.

    New enclosure for Chevy!

    Definitely couldn’t hurt to put a lock on there! My camera roll is mostly just pictures of Chevy so I already know how photogenic she can be?

    New enclosure for Chevy!

    Thank you! The humidifier part was so easy I was shocked! The only parts I needed were the humidifier itself and then I got a extra hose to a small shop vac. The hose is roughly 1 3/8” in diameter and it fit inside the humidifier easily. I then cut a 1 3/8” hole in the side of the enclosure and...

    New enclosure for Chevy!

    Thank you! Hawai’i is a very interesting place, each island is home to multiple microclimates, from rain forests to deserts and everything in between. I live on a part of the island that tends to be drier. The humidity in my area of the island ranges anywhere from 75%-62%. Just shy of that +80%...

    New enclosure for Chevy!

    Lil’ Chevy has Almost doubled her size in the 5 months I’ve had her and I knew it was time for a new enclosure.

    First time tortoise owner! First time posting! Regarding Humidity/Temp!

    You will definitely want to make a hole in your plexiglass if using a CHE. I made a frame with a wire mesh that attaches to my plexiglass and holds my CHE. Works like a charm!

    Advice needed. Cherry head red foot

    Looks a lot better! I think your tort just needs time to adjust and get comfortable. one thing I’d like to add about your new set up: I know that there is some debate as to whether pothos are a safe plant for Redfoots. I know a lot of keepers have had experience with their torts eating pothos...

    Advice needed. Cherry head red foot

    I think the “shy period” can vary greatly from tort to tort so it’s hard to say. Somethings that may help your tort come out of his/her shell, figuratively speaking, is adding some enrichment to the enclosure. Some edible plants to play around with or some rocks and wood to look at. Also...
